Syria: Climate Change, Drought and Social Unrest
Water shortages, crop-failure and displacement
From 2006-2011, up to 60% of Syria’s land experienced, in the terms of one expert,   “the worst long-term drought and most severe set of crop failures  since  agricultural civilizations began in the Fertile Crescent many  millennia  ago.” According to a special case study from last year’s Global Assessment Report on Disaster Risk Reduction (GAR),of   the most vulnerable Syrians dependent on agriculture, particularly in   the northeast governorate of Hassakeh (but also in the south), “nearly   75 percent … suffered total crop failure.” Herders in the northeast lost around 85% of their livestock, affecting 1.3 million people.

WORST YET TO COME 
Grimmer weather seen in next 10 years
The country hasn’t seen the last of extreme weather events.
Climate projections for 2020 and 2050 by the weather bureau are even grimmer: The dry season would be drier and the wet season would be wetter, and the damage to crops and water sources would be far-reaching. Mary Ann Lucille Sering, vice chairperson of the Climate Change Commission headed by President Benigno Aquino III, said that worst-case projections were for 2020.
“But the weather is changing now,” Sering said in an interview in the aftermath of the destruction wrought by Tropical Storm “Sendong” in Northern Mindanao.
“If we say we are racing against time, then technically, we can say that,” she added.
In fact, the country is in the midst of an environmental turmoil and politicians should address this with urgency, said Rosa Perez, a climate scientist at the Manila Observatory.
“They think it is a future problem, but it is happening now,” said Perez, lead author of a UN report on climate change adaptation and sustainability.
